Watch Inglourious Bastards (2009) Movie Clip:
Sinister motives, gullible moves and a ‘No Prisoner’ attitude of the Bastards make this an eerie movie and the performers have put in their best efforts to prove it. Lucky for director Quentin Tarantino, who has the privilege of riding a chariot drawn by intelligent horses, but who made the horses intelligent? Ably assisted by a well drafted script put together by Tarantino himself, it proved difficult for him to end the movie in a manner befitting its fast paced narrative. It was culmination of a big river into the ocean – the basin has to be equally large.
Some critics think some more gruesome deeds of Landa should have been included in the narrative. Others suggest Landa should have been scalped and the radio operator should have been marked. Whatever the outcome, the movies is so intense and powerful, it does not leave room for any conclusions in the minds of the viewer when inside the theatre. When he comes out he is still in a state of numbness because of its impact. A blissful experience, have it.
